Q. Can you guarantee first page rankings?
A. No reputable internet marketing business should or would offer any “Page 1 Ranking” promises. If you have been promised this, ask them how long it is expected to take, and how much money it will cost. Eventually, if you have deep enough pockets, you may e able to outspend your competitors, buyt it will still require great content and a great strategy. Smart Web Strategy does not make “guarantees” about ranking your website for its chosen keywords on Goggle’s front page. Companies that offer guarantees are simply using questionable sales gimmicks in order to sign you up. Google themselves have stated that no reputable SEO company can make guarantees because no one knows their algorithm. Please understand that we do not have any special relationship with Google, nor do we make any false promises or use misleading sales tactics.
